Church Activities
   Communion:      We celebrate communion (also known as The Lord's Supper) monthly, usually on 
                               the first Sunday of the month.

   Sunday School: This Fall we will begin by studying the Old Testament using the Great Courses DVD 
                               lecture series featuring Dr. Amy-Jill Levine, professor of New Testament and Jewish 
                               Studies at Vanderbilt University Divinity School.  We will continue with a study of the 
                               Holy Land, which will include presentations by Rev. Andy King about his travels to 
                               the Holy Land in 2016.  As we move into Advent, we will be studying the book 40 
                               Days of Love by Rick Warren, author of the Purpose Driven Life.  The Sunday 
                               School room is located to the left of the front door, at the end of hallway.  Join us for 
                               a time of fellowship, study, good conversation, and good coffee.

   Women's small groups:  (called Presbyterian Women Circles) usually meet on the second Monday 
                               and Tuesday of the month.  Call the church office at 540-366-7959 or e-mail

    Mission Opportunities: 

                                Presbyterian Community Center (PCC): Loaves of bread are collected on the first
                                Sunday of the month for the PCC's food bank.  Food and financial donations are                                 collected biannually to support the PCC's Hunger Buster Bag program.

​                                Two Cents-a-Meal donations are collected on the second Sunday of the month.  
                                These donations help fight hunger locally, nationally, and internationally.  This 
                                program was started in 1979 by Rosellyn Calvert who wanted to help those 
                                suffering from hunger and poverty around the world.  When she asked God what 
                                she could do to help, she was led to give two cents at each meal.  We join many 
                                Christians throughout the nation in supporting the Two Cents-a-Meal program.  
                                Click here for more information.  To donate, please make checks payable to "Green 
                                Ridge Presbyterian Church" and write "Two Cents a Meal" in the memo line.  You 
                                can also donate cash in an envelope labeled "Two Cents a Meal."
                                Elijah's Backpack is a program that provides children in need with healthy meals                                 and snacks throughout the weekend.  This is a free, community ministry sponsored                                 by St. Philip Lutheran Church in Roanoke, Virginia.  Green Ridge Presbyterian                                 partners with St. Philip Lutheran in supporting this ministry.  Volunteers from Green                                 Ridge help pack bags of food at St. Philip Lutheran once a month.
